This is super good! The only change I made was substituting the fresh garlic for minced garlic in a jar which is what I had on hand. It's great to baste grilled salmon and grilled chicken with as well!

I made a third of this recipe to use with our "Homemade Chinese" takeout-style dinner. Besides using it with egg rolls and crab rangoons, we put dabs on our sliced pork. It is also good stirred into a vegetable stir-fry...bean sprouts, onions, tri-color peppers, scallions, etc. It's a keeper!
